The Met Opera: Cendrillon
A fairy godmother, a glass slipper, an opulent ball, an enchanted forest, and a Prince Charming who loves her-did all that really happen, or was it just a dream?
Long-suffering Cendrillon lives a life of drudgery with her good-natured father and his imperious wife, until fate, romance, and a touch of fairy magic intervene. For the first time ever, Massenet's sumptuous version of the Cinderella story comes to the Met in this imaginative storybook production directed by Laurent Pelly.
Superstar Joyce DiDonato sings the title role, alongside British mezzo-soprano Alice Coote in the trouser role of Prince Charming, Kathleen Kim as the Fairy Godmother, and Stephanie Blythe as the archetypal wicked stepmother.
